Have backed again. Reaper Bones 1:- Slightly late, but no real issues. Didn't back any of the subsequent Bones Kickstarters (not a fan of the material). Stonehaven Gnome Adventurers:- Also received with no issues. Have backed again. Super Dungeon Explore - Forgotten King:- Late, but no other issues. Did not back any further Kickstarters from them (lost interest in chibi-style minis). Wolsung:- Very late, but no other issues. No plans to back any future Kickstarters (I have enough at the moment). Carnevale:- Late, I considered the postage charges excessive and the mini I received was very poorly cast and sculpted. Will not back (or buy) anything from them in future. Basius 2:- Late, but no other issues. No plans to back any future Kickstarters (Don't use the 2 I got as much as I thought I would). Minion Miniatures - Monsters of Underdeep:- Received late, but with no issues. Would recommend them. Corvus Corax - Outcasts:- Received early, no issues. Have backed again. Corvus Corax - Dawning:- Received early (again!), no issues (again!), would recommend them. Kingdom Death - Monster:- Final expansion was cancelled and received a refund, so is now officially completed. Despite being VERY late I did back their latest project in the hope that lessons were learnt. Song of Blades - Hammer and Forge:- Received on time. Looks good, would recommend. Infamy - Goblin Chief:- Received 3 months (!?!) early. Lovely mini, would recommend. Wild West Exodus - Unfinished Business:- Received on time. Pretty disappointed by the minis in the end, they seem to have been cast on the cheap, would not recommend backing anything of theirs again. Bombshell Babes 2:- Received slightly early. Very nice minis, but would have appreciated some better packaging, they've all been a bit bashed and bent during transit. Would recommend. Heroines in Sensible Shoes:- Received on time. Very nice minis, would recommend. Going Native - New World Monsters:- Received late, but the quality is very nice. Would recommend. Stonehaven Halfling Adeventurers:- Received late (but for good reasons), minis are up to the usual high Stonehaven standards. Would recommend. Norsgard - Second Wave:- Received early, Very nice minis. Would recommend. The Pantheon Of Chaos:- Received late, but was very pleased with what I got. Would recommend. TGG2 - Light and Darkness:- Received late. Decided to go with resin minis in the end just to get it over with, despite the minis being decent a lot of little things about this one annoyed me no end, would not back any more of their Kickstarters. Shadows of Brimstone:- Received late (est. delivery Aug 2014). Finally arrived in early 2018, however it did look like they had spent the years putting a lot of work into the game, wouldn't back another one though. Twisted:- Received late (est. delivery Nov 2016). Even taking into account that this was a two man team running their very first Kickstarter this one was extremely late, I would back another campaign though (I really like the minis), but I wonder if the delays in getting it out have killed any chances the game had. Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3:- Received early (est. delivery May 2018). Straight into the completed column, why can't more Kickstarters be like this? Highly recommended, even if I personally probably won't be backing any more. Carnvale:- Received late (est. delivery Feb 2018). This one got held up by rule-book issues (And considering I wasn't getting a rule-book was somewhat annoying), minis were nice but in quite a few small pieces. Would still recommend them though. Daughters of the Burning Rose:- Received late (est. delivery Oct 2018). A fairly well run Kickstarter, they were very upfront that it was a lot more successful than expected and so would take a lot more time to fulfil. Unfortunately soon after I backed this one, the minis I wanted were superseded by (IMO) superior versions from another company, so this one was kinda a waste of money. Would recommend. Unbroken:- Received late (est. delivery Dec 2018). A decently made if not particularly good game, certainly not worth all the drama it generated. Would not back any further kickstarters or have any dealings with Golden Bell Studios in general, they're just not a particularly competent company. The Stygian Depths:- Received slightly late (est. delivery May 2019). No real problems beyond a few communication issues (despite my griping), minis were nice and well packed. Would recommend even though I am unlikely to back any more of their Kickstarters myself (I have enough). Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2:- Received slightly late (est. delivery April 2019). Not as well run as previous Stonehaven Kickstarters I have backed and the minis were rather poorly packed. I personally won't be backing any more and I'm not sure I'd recommend them to others either. Twisted Monstrous Marvels:- Received slightly late due to understandable Covid/Brexit stuff, very snazzy minis. Probably one of the few companies I will back on Kickstarter at this point. Middara:- Received Wave 1 a year late, looks great but I'm not going to up my pledge for the rest of it. Reaper Bones 5:- Received slightly late. Great minis but I had the same reaction I've been having with my Kickstarters for a while, get really excited when it's shipping, get really excited going through all the cool new stuff, then pack it all away and paint something from Games Workshop . While I can't recommend the Bones Kickstarters enough, I probably won't be taking part in the next one. Failed:- Reveal hidden contents Imbrian Arts:- No updates in years, I'm officially calling this one dead. Considering the on-line store is gone now, I'm not sure if I can even trade in my remaining pledge for existing minis anymore. Mierce Miniatures - Savage Hordes 4:- While this one isn't officially dead, I'm no longer expecting to get anything else. Not a total failure, I did get all the existing minis I pledged for, but there's been no mention of the ones I'm waiting on since the Kickstarter ran. Refunded:- Reveal hidden contents Etherfields:- Got my Wave 2 stuff refunded. They looked like nice minis but I've barely touched the ones I already have. The Isofarian Guard:- Full refund. I kind of regret not sticking with this one as it was looking like a nifty game. Batman - The Animated Adventures:- Full refund. Wasn't too happy with how this one was going any ways. Kingdom Death Monster 1.5:- Partial refund. Was just taking too long and I've pretty much lost interest. Dawn of Madness:- Looked interesting, but it was another big board game Kickstarter I was never going to do anything with. Recently Received:- The Elves Of Inneath:- Received late, but for understandable reasons. Very nice minis and would recommend. Pending:- Aeon Trespass: Odyssey:- Late (Due Jan 2021), still chugging along slowly, should get it later this year. Mork Borg Miniatures:- Due Sep 2022, bit too early to tell how it's going but they've done a few, so hopefully it goes well. Colostle - The Roomlands:- Due Aug 2022, seems to be proceeding nicely, too early to tell really. New:- Household:- Due Jun 2023, got a long time before anything noticeable happens with this one. And that's officially it for me when it comes to Kickstarter (And I really mean it this time!). Thanks to the new online security measures UK banks have been implementing lately, this is one of the sites that no longer take my credit card, so I'm now expected to actually have the money to back these and not just leave it all in the hands of Future Me and his theoretical millions.
